The National Composites Centre Supports Coleg Gwent in Ebbw Vale to Start First Introduction to Composites Course in Wales

October 01 2018

Coleg Gwent in Ebbw Vale has officially launched the Dennison Advanced Materials Centre, the first of its kind in Wales.

Economy Secretary, Ken Skates, opened the new center at its Blaenau Gwent Learning Zone on September 27, 2018 with representatives from companies including British Airways, GKN Aerospace, and Zodiac Aerospace.

The center is named after Jon Dennison, the former Government Liaison Director at GKN Aerospace. He was a pioneer in the field of composite materials and had a vision of creating a ‘Composites Corridor’ in South Wales.

The College will introduce the first Advanced Composites Apprenticeship course in Wales which students can study from January 2019 in the new center. John Sexton, Campus Director Blaenau Gwent Learning Zone, said: “We’re thrilled to be the first college in Wales, and fourth college in the UK, to offer the ‘Introduction to Composites’ course for students.”
